A former advisor to Obama has accused the Trump administration of using borderline fraud and accounting gimmicks in the new budget proposal.
“What is a fraud is telling the American people, ‘Pay no attention to those numbers,” Cavuto responded, referring to rising taxes and healthcare premiums.
Goolsbee went on to state that Trump promised to not cut Medicaid, with Cavuto saying that slowing it’s grown is basically cutting it’s funding.
“The best thing Trump has going for him is that no one is going to read this budget with everything else going on,” Goolsbee said.
“We are hosing the American people,” and some of the government’s spending habits are “ripe for pruning,” Cavuto said.
